    Help!!! I don't want to have a popsicle Silkie!

    Quote: She is the only one having a problem. WHen I pick her up and take her outside to free range I normally hold and pet her for a little bit. She is definately my baby. I can feel her shivering. I definately don't want to do anything that would hurt her and am scared to take the heat...

    Help!!! I don't want to have a popsicle Silkie!

    Quote: She is very tiny. She was the runt of the litter. She gets cracked corn every night as their treat. We throw it out in the "human" yard and she runs around scrathing and fiding it. She has a full little crop every night. If I have to bring her inside I can certainly do that. Her...

    Help!!! I don't want to have a popsicle Silkie!

    Quote: I'm not sure about the broody thing. She used to lay her egg in the corner where her box is now. I haven't been getting an egg in her little box and since I have 23 hens i don't know if she is laying in one of the nest boxes. Does she have to have an egg under her to go broody? This...

    Is this a sick chick?

    Quote: When I put mine down in that fuzzy bootie I think she thought it was like momma and she just snuggled in and slept so contentedly. My 2 sickly babies seem to appreciate the chance to sleep in the slipper and not b disturbed. I think that extra sleep helped a lot. Like I said, they...

    Mulch in run?

    My problem with sand is this: the run is on the downside of the hill. We put the run there so we wouldn't have to worry about mud holes and such. But the downside is when we put sand down and it rains it washes out into our human yard and creates a mess. we have been using the pea gravel and...

    So many flies... ugh

    Quote: we did research on those also and for us seemed like too big of a job and kind of expensive. We have 3 acres, but the chicks don't use much of that and it just didn't seem cost effective to us. We did hear VERY good things about it and heard it works very well!
